Recapping wines 1 through 20

I thought I'd take this opportunity to do recap of the first 20 wines my brother and I have tasted. It also gives you a quick cheat sheet of the wines so far if you'd like to try this at home (yes, I said try this at home). I give you the grape varietal, whether it's red or white, the name of the winery, the country and of course my rating (a very simple one- like, dislike or neutral).
